A brief, unholy meditation on '70s-'80s era nunsploitation.

As part of my study on the history of cinema fetishism, here are four typically over-the-top scenes from some nunsploitation films. These are: (1) Satánico Pandemonium (Mexico, 1975) (2) The Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine (Italy, 1974) (3) Images fr...
